More happening at the station …

Phase II of the station garden is about to happen …

Next week Men in Sheds will be delivering two raised beds  for Phase 2 of the garden and there will be two open gardening sessions to fill these.

  • Filling the raised beds with soil – Friday 27th September at 10:30 am – 12:30pm
  • Planting the raised beds – Sunday, 6th October at 2pm-4pm

Also, keep your eyes on the the willdlife friendly garden over the next month as planting starts to take shape.

Please let us know if you have any insect friendly plants that you would like to donate charltoncommunitygardens@gmail.com.    We hope to plant some donated plants at the first of our regular monthly gardening parties on Sunday, 6th October.

See you soon.

Garden is looking good after 2nd clearing session.

Thanks to all who came to yesterday’s clearing session.

We are thrilled by both the good turnout and by what we have achieved together.  The ground  has been cleared of weeds for Phase 2 of the garden.  The silver birch trees, buddleja and grapevine are looking great now that  more weeds (especially the pesky bindweed!)  have been cleared away from them.

The two new raised beds are due to be  installed by the end of this month. We will be in touch shortly with future dates for planting and group sessions.

Another successful clearing session

 

Hard at work!

Hard at work!

We had a good turnout for our latest clearing session at the station yesterday.  We cleared most of the area near the platform ready for the next raised beds to be installed.  Many thanks to those that turned out and to neighbours who loaned their wheelie bins for the rubbish.

There’s another clearing session next Sunday 8th September at 10.00 am to finish the work, so please come along.

Please note – we’ve had to postpone the delivery of the raised beds, so the dates planned for filling them and planting them up have also had to be changed.  We’ll advise the new dates as soon as we can.
